  • phpbb to vb3 connection to source server failed

    I know it has been asked a million times but I got this error.

    Connection to source server failed. Check username and password.

    I want to know if the sourcepassword can be changed? Honestly, I don't know what else to do..I've deleted and re uploaded 3 times and I still get that damn message I have even tried other passwords I use, here are my settings on Impexconfig the board works fine its just this.

     targetdatabasetype  = mysql
    targetserver		= localhost
    targetuser		  = "lopezvic_forums"
    targetpassword	  = "********"
    targetdatabase	  = lopezvic_forums
    targettableprefix   =

    ; mysql OR mssql
    sourcedatabasetype  = mysql
    sourceserver		= localhost
    sourceuser		  = "lopezvic_phpb1"
    sourcepassword	  = "*********"
    sourcedatabase	  = lopezvic_phpb1
    sourcetableprefix   = phpbb_

    This is the error received
